Not only is Frank Gruendel the hardware expert, but he also recells Newton battery trays! He can either recell your existing battery tray (assuming it's still in usable condition) or sell you one that he's already done for a small fee.
I've purchased things from him before and can recommend him highly...as can many others on this site and elsewhere.
This sounds like a better alternative to me than letting your Newton sit and collect dust.
